I too am facing the same issue … but there is no damn one who is helping … I am just losing my patience… I have some work that I had been working on and I cannot seem to boot it up anymore after the new update… and no one on here seems to want to help… … I will let you know if I find any solutions … Just wanted to let you know that you are not alone on this issue
Sorry to see that you and @philipthedev are running into issues with Local on Windows. Local uses VirtualBox, which currently doesn’t work well with other virtualization software on windows like HyperV.
Would you be able to share your Local logs? This post will show you how to find the log files.
You can attach that file to your post here in the community.
In this post, Clay mentions how to disable HyperV under Side Note: Hyper-V must also be disabled which may get you up and running:
Also, as @afragen mentioned, Local Lighting is available in beta right now and doesn’t use Virtual Box. So that might help with the trouble you are seeing on Windows, but also keep in mind that it is still in beta.
Also is their anyway i can retrieve the sql data of the site without booting up local ? cause i wanted to backup my work … i did not think i will have to go thru all this and my work is stuck in this and not exactly sure how to go about it
I was installing Local on my windows PC, and I ran into this error at the second stage, i.e., installing host machine. I performed the procedures you recommended but when I try to install again, I still get the same error when I get to the second step where I’m supposed to install the Host Machine. What could be wrong? Hyper-V is turned off already. I’m using the latest Windows 10 pro on a HP Spectre.
